Clearly someone over at Steam HQ has been on the loopy juice as the weekend sale started early, with a huge 66% off on the seriously fun, Serious Sam HD. Most places such as Amazon are still selling this for £14.99 so you can save over £8!
Not heard of Serious Sam? Then you’ve not lived. The original game went back to the kind of nonstop shooting fun that Doom and Doom 2 gave us. No nonsense, nonstop blasting with wave upon wave of enemies rained down upon you. We’d never seen anything like it with at times hundreds – or seemingly so, we didn’t stop for a head count at the time - of on-screen enemies.
With the passage of time there’s already been a Serious Sam 2 but this is a redux of the crazed original, but with all the trimmings you’d expect of a modern game including high-res textures, HDR lighting and depth of field effects.
For us at least, the coup de grace is the support for up to 16 co-op players. Never has so much fun been packed into one game. You’ll face everything from the smallest hopping foes to the skyscraper sized Ugh-Zan and you’ll have to throw everything in your vast armoury at them to win. At just 17 levels, which a re pretty basic, you can certainly say Serious Sam HD isn’t that big and it’s most certinaly not clever, but what it is, is a lot of fun.
